    When my car had issues with the idle speed I needed to clean the Idle Control Valve. It had gotten dirty/sticky over the years. Just sprayed it with carb cleaner.

    In all honesty it may not be the Progressive shocks issue as I have nothing to compare it to except the stock shock.

    I have used Nitron, Ohlins and Hagon shocks on my other bikes and there was a...

    After I bought the Progressive I found this advert for Wilbers. They make very good shocks and might give one a try as not impressed by the Progressive.

    Shame Ohlins have stopped making theirs.

    Yep, that's what it was on my Bandit. Filter isn't even mentioned in the manual. It just blocks and reduces power. >:(:(" smilieid="18" class="inlineimg" border="0">

    Hi Sparklyman, I have used 20/50 in my 2013 and it made little or no difference to the gear shift. Replacing front engine mounts helped and the pro-star thingy helped a lot. Gearshift (1-2) is still...

    Changing the mounts helped my gear change a lot. A few vibes in the mirrors that weren't there with the old soft mounts.

    I found changing maps in my PC5 fixed the 3000-3500 rpm vibes.

    To get power you need rpm. To get rpm you need slow piston speeds. To get slow piston speeds you need a short stroke. Then you end up with a buzzy engine like the new Ducati's. Not my cup of tea.
